I've heard that plenty - though the Waterway near me is fine. I've used it for five years with no issues.

Still, I wouldn't try any random one that I don't know. Some of them definitely don't fit.

I'm never mad when one tells me I won't fit, I am however when they tell me I do and then I don't haha. I have never had anything break on my truck from a car wash but I did end up breaking one of their machines. I'm now a lot more picky about where to go, I'd do it myself but it's around 112 with 100 percent humidity where I am now and I'm not that dedicated.

Honestly, it depends on where you live. I am in the Dallas 'burbs, and I haven't had many issues with the width of the truck... but if I lived in someplace like Boston or San Francisco, I'd be singing a different tune.

This is definitely the most important part of it.

Where are you located? There may be some people nearby who can tell you their experience driving a raptor..

You mention you currently DD a Denali XL I think you'll be fine with the Raptor

I live in the suburbs so I won't have to be doing any city driving or anything like that too often I would expect.

Coming from a midsize SUV, the size was a lot to get used to, but it is only 6" wider than a standard F-150. I love the 360deg cam and use it all the time when in close quarters. The tall sidewall tires are also forgiving for the inevitable curb checks. If I had 22" rims they would be trashed by now.

After 10 minutes you won't notice any difference and frankly won't care if you do.
